What adjustment did you make after <Tab>, by the way?

LXDE or XFCE should give you a GUI environment in less storage.

I deleted the "--quiet" parameter (wanted to know what was going on)
and the "--vga=...." parameter also. It was the "vga-..." that was
causing the trouble I think.

Now running on LXDE, but I had to manually fiddle with wifi
(/etc/interfaces) and with sound (alsa stuff). The purpose of this
was to hook the EeePC up to the Hi Fi system so that I can listen to
Internet radio - the Internet connection is wifi. All now in place.
Once again, thanks to everybody who helped.

Cheers,
Rob Hurle
